Architects and researchers are increasingly turning their attention to the creation of comfortable school and work spaces for those on the autism spectrum

 

There was very little research available on the topic, so Paron-Wildes conducted her own, developing guidelines for architects and helping design facilities for children with autism. But she also finds “design empathy,” as she puts it, valuable in the offices she designs with her day job. “We have a range of human spectrums,” she says.’

 

 the diversity among the population of people might, and should, generate a deeper and more empathetic way of thinking about how everyone experiences a space
